WATCH: A Former Porn Star’s Unlikely Testimony

One of our focuses here at XXXchurch has always been on those who are in the porn industry. We meet so many of them during outreaches and we’ve long known that they’re regular people, just like you and me: they have dreams for life, they have bills to pay, they have parents and family and (occasionally) children. They just do something different for a living than many of the rest of us. And, very often, those who work in the industry would love to be doing something else but just don’t know how to remove themselves from it.

One such person is Greg. We’ve gotten to know Greg, who used to act in porn under the name “Randy Spears.” Here’s a short video about Greg’s story, as well as some thoughts he wrote down about his life in porn, his faith, and the power that both of those have had over his life. Check it out, and if this testimony from a former porn star speaks to you, go to XXXchurch.com/get-involved to get involved in helping people just like Greg.

“I have a story. We all do. Mine is not only unique, but highly controversial to many. A rebel if you will, but certainly with a cause. I became so used to my lifestyle that it became ‘normal’ to me. In retrospect, it was anything but. I am Randy Spears. I am also Greg. Porn was my job, my life, my universe, and I was deeply immersed in it.

Let me make something perfectly clear from the beginning: I am a Christian. I have always been.

At the height of my career I was a Christian. I was raised that way and remained a Christian throughout my career. I just had one foot in and one foot out. The dedication to my faith and my Creator took a back seat to the lifestyle I wanted to live.

Let me make something else crystal clear: I do not hate porn people.

I do not look down on them in any way or judge the people that are in that business. Those people are my friends, and I love some of them dearly. How could I possibly judge anyone? That would make me the biggest of hypocrites and go against the very message in which I believe. I have never, and will never, “thump” anyone with the book that I firmly believe was God-inspired, protected through the ages, true, and which I carry under my arm to church every Sunday.

I don’t rain down fire and brimstone messages to the hapless sinners who don’t turn from their wicked ways. I have no soapbox or political agenda. It makes me weary to think of the energy I’d have to expend in such a conquest. I leave the saving to the one who saves: God.
